To really understand the Internet of Things (IoT) requires application, implementation, and execution in the real world. IEEE IoT recently launched a program to provide the IoT community an interactive platform on which to engage with use cases, service descriptions, business models, and reference implementations that will be key to developing a vibrant IoT industry. This is a fantastic opportunity for you to contribute to the IoT cause, as well as get excellent exposure for your projects and ideas.

Marie is practicing golf on a practice field. She swings her club and hits the ball. Her golf club is equipped with an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), which is used to measure the speed and acceleration of the club in 3 dimensions. The measurement is transmitted to her wrist computer with a short distance radio. Her golf shoes have pressure sensors on them and they too transmit their measurement during the swing to the wrist computer. The mobile phone analyzes the data and decides that Marie leans too much forward and that her grip of the club is not quite optimal. The device generates a suggestion for her and transmits it to her headphones.
